Can you use reduced fat cream cheese and single cream instead of double cream and full fat cream cheese in a cheesecake?

Reduced fat and even fat free cream cheese products work just as well as their full fat counter parts when making cheese cake. I recommend following the same instructions for any cheese cake recipe but rather than making a crust,which usually is created with butter, try putting low-fat graham crackers on the bottom of a glass serving dish with the cheese cake filling layered on top and topped off with fruit. The same idea can be turned into a parfait dessert if individual desserts are desired.

Can cream cheese be frozen?

I attempted to freeze cream cheese once and the result when it defrosted was a crumbly mess. Anything with a high water content generally doesn't freeze and defrost very well. I suppose technically anything can be frozen, the real question is can it be successfully frozen and defrosted.

What are the ingredients of cream cheese?

Cream cheese is an American invention that dates back to 1872. Aside from being the key ingredient in cheese cake, the smooth soft cheese is served with fruit, crackers, or on breads such as bagels.

Cream cheese is made from cow's milk and is considered an unripened cheese and by definition must contain at least 33 % milk fat. The cream cheese product is available in full fat, low-fat or light. A similar product is Neufachatel cheese which is lower in fat (about 23%). There is also a spreadable version which is simply whipped cream cheese which gives the product a light easy-to-spread texture.
